Sangani Osuitok

Inuit

Cape Dorset, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1961-2011)

Sangani was born in Cape Dorset and has lived there all his life. He was raised in a family of Cape Dorset artists. His father, Osuitok Ipeelee and brother Tuqiqi are well known carvers, as was his mother, the late Nipisha Osuitok. Sangani began carving around 1967, and can recall selling his first piece to Terry Ryan of the Cape Dorset Co-op. He has said that he enjoys carving, and although he is self-taught, he has also learned a lot by watching his father.
